Thank you all, I'm sorry that with everything going on I forgot to post the results from last night;
"Thistles" and "Kes" both scored 17 (out of 20).
"Worthing Pier in 20 Seconds" scored 18 (out of 20).
Both are respectable scores from a judge who seemed quite eccentric when it came to scoring. (Not bad as such but very inconsistent between what he was saying and how he was marking.)
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
